QPR v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Loftus Road Date: Sunday, 12 April Kick-off: 13:30 BST I’m sure there are plenty out there well up up for this today. Me? I hate this sort of game.

CHELSEA 1-1 Southampton: Advancing Slowly

CHELSEA v Southampton: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Sunday, 15 March Kick-off: 13:30 GMT So, if we can behave ourselves for 90 minutes and stop upsetting Carragher and co by remonstrating with these fine upstanding figures who clearly don’t need to do their job well, then we have a bit of a game today. After a pretty woeful exit [...]
